Southwest Monsoon All Set To Maroon West Coast

With the developing circulation progressing northwards in the Bay of Bengal, the southwest monsoon is all set to pick up in activity, making up for its lacklustre start. Increasing rainfall in the Konkan coast is likely to stage a blitzkrieg in the days to come with heavy falls deluging the Karnataka coast.

Tamil Nadu is likely to be occupied by the covetous sun with a few periods of cloudy weather. Isolated rainfall is likely in the state, along with prevailing passing showers in the adjoining regions of Rayalaseema. Rainfall is likely to pick up in the eastern states with the circulation in the Bay of Bengal nearing the coast. Heavy rainfall is also likely in the northern parts of Kerala with moderate rainfall prevailing in the other parts of the state.
